TheCarConnection.com notes an abundance of high-tech accessories available for the 2008 Ford Taurus X.

Trim levels for this 2008 Ford are the SEL, Eddie Bauer Edition, and Limited.

The base SEL model of the Ford 2008 Taurus X includes "17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, two-tone exterior paint, privacy glass, air-conditioning, a six-way power driver seat, an in-dash CD changer, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, full power accessories, cruise control, a trip computer and heated mirrors," according to Edmunds.

The Eddie Bauer edition of the 2008 Ford offers a number of cosmetic options that include "gold body cladding, two-tone leather upholstery in the first and second rows, wood-grain interior trim," as well as a two-tone paint scheme similar to that of the Subaru Outback.

Optional features according to Autoblog include "a roof-mounted DVD player with flip down screen and auxiliary inputs." The drawback to this device is that it "failed to read any of the half dozen burned discs" the reviewer tried. The auxiliary inputs allow one to "plug in a video iPod or game console and play that on the screen."

Cars.com reports that a "sonar Reverse Sensing System, a stand-alone option, is helpful for parking" the Ford 2008 Taurus X.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
